Hello hfung,

I'm sorry you're having trouble with receiving emails. In order for email to be properly routed and handled by the Web Hosting Hub server your account is on, you will want to point your domain to our Nameservers. Once you have made that change, please allow 4-24 hours for DNS to propagate and email to function normally.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or need further assistance.
